››Multi-Cell Unit Options
Special care must be taken for multi-cell installations to ensure balanced
water levels in the cold water basins across cells. If measures are not
put in place to ensure balanced basin water levels, a potential exists that
one basin may overflow and dump water, while the water level in another
tower goes low and requires make-up. This leads to unnecessary water
waste. To prevent this from occurring, BAC provides two options for
balancing water levels and recommends that the installation be designed
to ensure balanced flows to and from each tower.

`` FLUME BOX – STANDARD ON ALL MULTI-CELL UNITS


A flume box is provided as standard for multi-cell units to balance
the water level in the cold water basins. See the “Connection Guide”

It reduces installation costs and reduces potential for errors during
field piping fabrication.

`` STANDARD WEIR DAMS


Reducing water flow through a unit below the recommended level
may potentially create uneven water distribution through the heat EASY CONNECT® Piping Arrangement
transfer section, causing scale build up, splash out/drift, and icing.
To successfully modulate the water flow while avoiding potential
complications, weir dams may be installed in the hot water basin.
With a weir dam, the hot water basin can accommodate a flow range
of 50% to 100% of the design flow.

››Fill
BACross® Fill, BAC’s patented crossflow hanging fill, was developed

››Capacity Enhancement
The need to enhance the capacity of a unit may be necessary when
layout is restricted or if capacity requirements have increased and exceed
an existing unit’s capabilities. By enhancing the capacity of a unit, it
may be possible to use a smaller foot print while still meeting thermal
requirements of the installation.

`` VELOCITY RECOVERY (VR) STACKS (OPTION)


A VR stack is a conical fan cowl extension that reduces the discharge Velocity Recovery (VR) Stacks
pressure the fan has to work against, allowing the fan to move more
air for the same energy input. By moving more air through the same

BAC units are factory-assembled to ensure uniform quality with minimum
field assembly. Each unit has been designed with rigging and assembly
in mind and includes features to minimize the number of tools required
and installation time. Rigging Guides Ensure Alignment

`` STANDARD RIGGING GUIDES


Rigging guides allow for the upper and lower section of units with
a two piece rig to align and engage. The guides ensure proper
placement of the top section for multi-cell installations, making
rigging much simpler and reducing the time required. This is
especially critical during multi-cell installations when units are
rigged side-by-side.

`` KNOCKDOWN UNITS (OPTION)


Knockdown units are available for jobs where access to the cooling
tower location is limited by elevators, doorways, or similar obstacles,
where lifting methods impose very strict weight limits, or where the
shipping cost of a fully assembled tower is excessive. All materials Knockdown Unit Installation
of construction and design features are the same as those of a
factory assembled unit. Welded stainless steel cold water basins and
TriArmor® Corrosion Protection System cold water basins are excluded
due to the need for in-plant assembly. PRODUCT & APPLICATION HANDBOOK VOLUME V B26

››Sound Options
Recognition of the importance of sound reduction is growing and can
be a very important design criterion for any project. BAC maintains the
widest selection of sound mitigating options in the market place and can
provide the most cost effective option to meet any requirement.

`` STANDARD FAN
The fan provided for all Series 3000 Cooling Towers is selected to

Valued

optimize low sound levels and maximize thermal performance.


Low Sound Fan

`` LOW SOUND FAN (OPTION)


The Low Sound Fan option reduces sound up to 9 dBA. Adding
a high solidity fan decreases fan speeds, which proportionally
decreases sound levels. The thermal performance with the Low
Sound Fan has been certified in accordance with CTI Standard
STD-201.

`` WHISPER QUIET FAN (OPTION)


For the most extreme sound limitations, BAC’s Whisper Quiet Fan is
CTI-certified and reduces sound up to 19 dBA. The axial fan blades
are constructed of high grade marine alloy aluminum for light weight
construction and corrosion resistance. These heavy duty aluminum
fans require minimal maintenance, making them well suited for use
in cooling tower applications that benefit from extremely low sound
operation.

`` SOUND ATTENUATION (OPTION)


Factory designed, tested, and rated sound attenuation options are Whisper Quiet Fan
available for both the air intake and discharge. Consult your local
BAC Representative regarding available options.

››Air Intake Options


In a cooling tower, airborne debris can be entrained in the water through
the unit’s air intake. The Series 3000 has several options for air intake
accessories that prevent debris from entering the system and maintain
even unobstructed flow through the unit. Reducing the amount of debris
that enters the tower lowers maintenance requirements and helps to
maintain thermal efficiency.

`` STANDARD LOUVERS
Air intake louvers matching the material of construction of the unit
casing panels are standard. Scale formation and icing on the louvers
and fill sheets can damage the fill and reduce thermal performance.
The Series 3000 louvers are specially designed with greater spacing
between louvers (12”) and are completely separate from the fill
section. This reduces scale and ice accumulation and allows for
unobstructed air flow through the unit.

`` COMBINED INLET SHIELDS (CIS) (OPTION)


The Combined Inlet Shields’ (CIS) bent flow path blocks sunlight
Customer
Valued

from the cold water basin and fill section and acts as a screen to
prevent debris from entering the unit. These benefits result in a
significant reduction in algae growth, debris accumulation, and scale
build-up. CIS are constructed from corrosion and UV resistant PVC,
are CTI certified, and are installed in easy to handle sections that are
separate from the fill section to facilitate removal, inspection, and
replacement. The use of CIS results in lower maintenance costs and
ease of maintenance over the life of the unit.

`` AIR INTAKE SCREENS (OPTION) Combined Inlet Shields (CIS)


1” x 1” wire mesh screens are available factory-installed over the air
intake louvers to prevent debris from entering the tower and are CTI
certified.

››Access Options
BAC provides a broad offering of access options. Our evaporative
equipment is designed to be the most easily maintained for sustaining
capacity over a longer life. All BAC platforms and ladders are OSHA
compliant to ensure personnel safety and code compliance.

`` MOTOR REMOVAL SYSTEM (OPTION)


All motor removal system options include modular davit arm(s) to
facilitate motor replacement. There are three types of motor removal
systems available on the Series 3000.

Series 3000 Structural Support

The recommended support arrangement for the Series 3000 Cooling Tower consists of parallel structural members positioned
as shown in the drawings on page B42. In addition to providing adequate support, the members also serve to raise the
unit above any solid foundation to assure access to the bottom of the tower. The Series 3000 Cooling Tower may also be
supported on columns at the anchor bolt locations shown in Plan A (single cell) or Plan C (double cell). Alternate support
arrangements can be found on page B43. To support a Series 3000 Cooling Tower on columns with an alternate steel support
arrangement or the optional upgraded seismic and wind rated unit, consult your local BAC Representative.
